Hollow Glass Microspheres Y Series are hollow glass spheres designed for use in drilling, completion, and workover fluids, as well as cement slurries in the oil and gas industry. With density of 0.20~0.60 g/cc and crush strength of 2,000 ~12,000 psi (pounds per square inch), Y Series Hollow Glass Microspheres are well-suited for use in wells from various depths.
1)Successfully and predictably reduces the control fluid density
2)Prevents or minimizes fluid loss/lost circulation and formation damage
3)Incompressible and more homogeneous control fluid properties compared with foamed and aerated systems
4)Eliminates the need for specialized equipment used in foamed and aerated systems
5)Potential for improved production efficiency, enhanced well integrity and increased well productivity

Hollow Glass Microspheres’ applications are in the fields of Thermal insulation coating, putty, plastic casting polyester, FRP ,SMC, synthetic foam, adhesives, printed circuit board substrate, RTM, bowling, fan blades, & caulking materials, emulsion explosives, golf, sealant, pipeline insulation materials, artificial marble, PVC foam, low density oil drilling, light cement, and other deep-sea buoy etc.


hollow glass microspheres can be used in paints and coatings, sealants and adhesives, rubber, plastic, FRP, artificial stone, putty and other products as filler and weight-reducing agent. The glass bubbles can also be used to produce high-strength, low-density cement slurry and low-density drilling fluidity in oil and gas extraction industry. more and more industries are trying to test the hollow glass spheres as additives to improve the products’ properties.

        1. a. lightweight cement, low-density oil well cementing slurry & low-density drilling fluids additive.
        1. b. low-density FRP(fiberglass-reinforced plastic), SMC, BMC composites.
        1. c. Nylon, PA, PA6, PA66 for reducing weight.
        1. d. low-density adhesives & sealants.
        1. e. heat insulation paints and coatings.
        1. f.  Construction (reducing warpage/shrinkage).
        1. g. Insulation and Buoyancy.
        1. h. artificial marble.
